I Am Watching You Movie Synopsis
Nora Nichols is a 20-something-year-old romance blogger who is in desperate need of a book deal. When a book deal finally comes her way, Nora is struggling to find inspiration for her fantasy writing. Feeling pressure to turn in her final draft to the book publisher, Nora finally admits that she has writer’s block but promises to get them something soon. Meanwhile, Nora becomes completely infatuated with her handsome next door neighbor, Lucas, whose steamy bedroom activities keep her entertained.
It isn’t long before Lucas realizes that Nora is watching him every night. Now, Nora is desperate to get to know him up close and personal. She finally makes it her mission to introduce herself to Lucas. When Nora and Lucas meet each other for the first time there is an instant attraction, which leads to their first sexual experience.
As their sexual escapades become more interesting and their passion more uncontrollable, Nora has more than enough to fill the pages of her romance book. After the encounter, Nora realizes that she is in too deep and needs to stick with her no-strings-attached attitude, leading her to slowly back away from Lucas. But Lucas is not going anywhere. Now, the tables have turned, and he is watching her every move, which escalates to following her around, taking photos of her, and breaking into her apartment while she is sleeping.
At her wit’s end, Nora is even more horrified when she sees a news report about a murdered woman who was last seen in Lucas’ apartment. Now that her fantasy has turned into a twisted reality, it is apparent that the last chapter in her book could end with her own death.
